Phuket City Police led by Lt Col Naruebadin Pangleesen arrested Rut and Da (real names withheld) aged 14 and 17 respectively, who were both suspected of being involved in the theft of motorbikes in various parts of the island.

During the course of the arrest police seized six stolen motorbikes; four Honda Waves, one Honda Sonic, and one Honda Click.

Lt Col Naruebadin said, “The arrest of Rut and Da came after we were called to respond to a motorbike accident at the Surin Junction in Phuket Town. The victim, Rut, had crashed his motorbike and was being helped by his friend, Da, who had gone to the scene on another motorbike.

“We have been investigated several cases of motorbikes thefts in various parts of the island which are believed to have been carried out by a group of teenagers, and after making investigations we suspected Rut and Da.

“Officers who responded to the accident call reported that the two teenagers were the motorbike theft suspects we have been looking for,” he said.

“When we questioned them they admitted they had stolen stole nine motorbikes in total.

“They took us to their home where we seized a total of six stolen motorbikes. However, we are still trying to trace the remaining three stolen motorbikes which they said they had already sold to locals.

“The six seized motorbikes were stolen from Baan Mon in Patong, Moo Baan City Home in Wichit, Soi Tapakhao in Wichit, in front of a SuperCheap in Phuket Town, in front of the a Tesco Lotus store and at the Bang Ku junction in Koh Kaew.

“All motorbikes were taken to the station so that we can notify the owners.

“Rut and Da were also taken to the station to face theft and also possessing or receiving stolen item charges,” Lt Col Naruebadin.

Joe12, just for you
vagaries: "unexpected changes that you cannot control." Hardly what I, am I suggest most people, would consider describes these thieves, actually, described by PN as serial thieves. I guess another example of you being WRONG, also doing the same as that ex-editor, from that failed Phuket blog site, using you own definitions. Are you his clone?

Jogi...I find that PN articles to be of a high standard so don't feel the need to comment nor is there any point in it. I comment to correct the senseless garbage that is written by commentators that contain innuendo, are factually incorrect or disrespectful to the Thai people...same as your comments here. The "vagaries of youth" are not confined to Thai's as you suggest. It's common in any country.  For example: http://www.thephuketnews.com/britons-arrested-for-passing-forged-money-on-koh-pha-ngan-59141.php#YhW6JJ3jiT2dcUBK.97

The kids could have told their parents the bikes belonged to their friends given that the article does not state that the parents were charged with the receiving of the stolen goods or being an accessory to the thefts. So it's only innuendo on your part. 

Commentators can say what they like, but don't expect me to sit idly by and not correct the senseless garbage that is written and if you don't like it then too bad.

Yes Jogi, that was indeed my thinking. You are very right.
Boys of that age parking 6 motorbikes at home, +  3 were already sold.
As a parent I would question my 14 year old son about the 6 motorbikes.
It has nothing to do with a 24/7 watch by parents, as you mentioned very well. 
That is just drama rubbish of someone who likes to pull matters in a wrong context

@Joe12 what would you do if Kurt stop his comment's on Phuket News? would you start to comment yourself on new's?  by the way, like me he sure was not followed 24/7 by his parent. with 14 and 17 there home would be the home of there parents, where the bike's was hidden. Joe12 my parent (and i guess Kurt's to) would ask question's about this  bike's. give's me the feeling your parent would not. my parent's did not now THAINESS and how to breed criminal's

Kurt...wow, did you have your parents follow you around 24/7? It's what's termed the "vagaries of youth".

The Phuket News

Kurt | 21 September 2016 - 11:58:35

Ages 14 and 17. Very promising. Where were the parents?
If I had done that at such age, wow. 
I would have faced the music at home, not yet talking about legal consequences.
